The Northern Lights

One day, I will see (and hear!) the Northern Lights in person. For now, though, I’ll have to be content with this.

    That is VERY cool!! I remember the experience of seeing them when I was little, although I don’t remember them exactly, if that makes sense. :) I actually got all excited because I remember someone called my dad and I overheard them talking about going out to see lights, and even though I’m 99% sure that it was the middle of the summer, I got all excited for Christmas lights because I lovvvve Christmas lights! So I was actually kind of *disappointed* by the crazy awesome phenomenon. Sad! It’s so strange how you think when you’re a kid…. :)

    That is very cool, Arianna! Where were you when you saw them? Your story reminds me of when I was very young and my family was flying from Asia to the USA. We knew we had a stopover in Alaska. My little brother and I fell asleep, and when we woke up the plane was above the clouds. We thought we had landed in Alaska, and we wanted to go outside to play in the “snow”!

    It was where I grew up, in Connecticut. Of course it was VERY rare for aurora borealis to come that far south, so it was certainly a special time – but I didn’t appreciate as much as I should have!! :)

    That’s adorable about you & your brother. I can so understand that – I would’ve been the same way! Haha.
